LONDON, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Focus on customised polymers, new injection moulding processes and 3-D printing 

Up to 900 component suppliers of medical technology manufacturers will be exhibiting their innovations and services at MEDTEC Europe in Stuttgart. The central theme is innovative materials as well as product development and production processes. Amongst other things, Evonik Industries is showcasing customised plastics for the medical technology industry. The chemical specialist is appearing with its new VESTAMID® Care ME-B product range, for example. The company is also exhibiting its biostable PEEK for long-term implants and biodegradable polymers for orthopaedic use on their stand. ARBURG, the acknowledged injection moulding expert, is bringing a new application to the leading trade fair. The machine construction company demonstrates the efficient manufacture of syringe bodies from Cyclic Oelefin Polymer (COP) with its electric Allrounder 370 A in a GMP-compliant stainless steel design. Concept Laser is showcasing a generative metal laser fusion solution at this industry gathering with its LaserCUSING® process. Using this method, components can be created from powdered metals layer by layer using 3D CAD data.

"Customised polymers are becoming more and more important," declared Christian Röhnke, Business Manager Medical Devices at Evonik Industries. The company is exhibiting one innovation in this area with its VESTAMID® Care ME-B product range. This plastic can adhere directly to specially modified, fluoridated ethylene-propylene copolymers. To do this, the bond is created by co-extrusion which considerably simplifies the manufacturing process. Innovative solutions will be the focal point on the ARBURG stand: "Our exhibits enable us to show the potential of our products and our expertise in the area of medical technology in a graphical form," said Sven Kitzlinger, a technical application consultant at ARBURG. With its electric Allrounder 370 A with 600 kN of locking pressure and the model 70 injection unit, the company gives an on-the-spot insight into the efficient manufacture of innovative plastic coating. 3D printing also provides undreamed of possibilities for the medical technology industry: "The shift away from intrinsic thinking to additive geometric freedom of components is now no longer a pipe dream," said Oliver Edelmann, partner and Sales & Marketing Director at Concept Laser. With the Mlab cusing machine solution the company will demonstrate the laser fusion process step by step on its exhibition area.

With a comprehensive exhibitor programme and a large number of innovation topics, MEDTEC Europe is underlining its claim to be the leading, largest trade fair for the medical technology component supplier industry in 2014 too. The latest trends and developments will be under the spotlight from 3 - 5 June in an area of more than 36,000 m2. Specialists from the areas of medical automation, clean room technology and materials and packaging will be exhibiting in Halls 3, 5, 7 and 9 at the Stuttgart trade fair. The exhibition is divided into nine clear focal areas and exhibition fora, such as the i-Zone, where innovative start ups can exhibit for the first time on their own stage. In addition there is the matchmaking area for business contacts and discussions in a peaceful atmosphere and the networking area for interdisciplinary exchange between experts, industry representatives and all interested parties. The MEDTEC conference in Hall 9 is another addition to the leading trade fair. Here numerous experts will talk, for example, about progress in prototyping, in quality systems and production processes as well as changes to regulatory issues.

"The industry is on the move," said Fabienne Valambras, the organiser of MEDTEC Europe. "While regulatory authorities, for example, are setting stricter and stricter requirements, component suppliers are providing new solutions to current and future challenges. Anyone who wants to find out about the latest developments will find answers in Stuttgart. Once again, component suppliers and service providers will be showcasing innovations and intelligent solutions for the challenges posed by modern, efficient medical technology."

This year SÜDTEC, the industry gathering for the production industry in Southern Germany will be held again at the same time as MEDTEC Europe. Visitors will find SÜDTEC in Hall 3.
